Solskjaer applauding after a Manchester United match

The visitors created little of note until Marcus Rashford's 95th-minute consolation goal and needed several fine saves from Sergio Romero to deny Wolves before Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota scored in quick succession.

"Because PSG we still had a chance to correct it and before then the last game I lost was against Ranheim on 26th August, so it was a long time ago".

Goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang condemned Manchester United to their first league defeat since Solskjaer's appointment as caretaker boss back in December, however, the Norwegian said that despite the result, he was pleased with the performance from his side. As quoted by the Daily Mail, Solskjaer said: "I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players". "We never had the urgency and the quality on the ball". To try to achieve the same is much, much harder now but we will try step by step.

"We had decent dominance with the ball in the first half but that doesn't help if you give the ball away and they can counter". We're in a great position in the league, we've got the Champions League.

"We've done well, of course".

The Norwegian said his side have "got to go again" after the global break as they bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League and face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.

And former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is backing Manchester United to claim victory and seal their spot in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday.

"We're ready to go again after the internationals", he told reporters.

"We can't wait for the challenge".
